Re: portable power pack

I have the power pack but haven't tried running a time laps with it.  It will charge a GoPro camera four times, so my best guess is 4X the time your camera can run without it.

This calculator might help you come up with the duration https://cam-do.com/pages/photography-time-lapse-calculator

Re: portable power pack

It would be 5 times if the camera is fully charged first. Most of the wasted energy will be from the generated heat so in reality it will be a bit less than 5x

Re: portable power pack

thanks...this is all new to me so be patient for my clarification questions: so I can use power pack to run the camera (not just charge)? If I was to shoot videos non-stop how much time running from power pack?
